Today we look at Hop Pursuit by Full Sail Brewing Company of Hood River, Oregon. From their website: "Hop Pursuit Extra Pale - Available March to June.
As the sun rises earlier and stays out longer, we celebrate the coming of spring and the sprouting of this yearâs hop crop with a new beer in our Brewmaster Reserve line-up. Hop Pursuit is a crisp, orange blonde extra pale ale with a medium malt body thatâs chased by a ton of hop flavor and zing of bitterness. We brewed it with the less aggressive, old school craft brewing hopsâ Cascade, Willamette, and Mt. Hoodâ to celebrate more of the hop flavor and less of the hop bitterness. These give the beer a nice and fresh citrus herbal character without a lot of intensity; instead it has a softly flavorful character with touches of orange and lemon. We dry hopped for two weeks to amplify these delicate hop flavors. Available in 22oz. bottles and draught. ABV 6%, IBU 55".
